“A short section of ridge trail followed by an attention getting descent to Bear Run.”— Trail Run Project Staff
The trail drops in steeply before mellowing out. A short distance later you'll cross Brooks Rd. and begin the descent to Bear Run. There are a couple small stream crossing and tight technical sections but all ride able.
Riding this section in reverse is a solid climb with a couple steep sections that are doable but most riders end up hiking a little.
